Clearaudio Concerto v2 Cartridge

The Concerto v2 is the first model in the Clearaudio MC line that combines the twelve-finger body with the fully symmetrical moving coil phono cartridge generator design. Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve-finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius. Satinee wood is used for the body material to further control resonance and the v2 mounting plate feature a tapped metal insert for best coupling to the headshell.

Developed in the 1970s by Peter Suchy, our unique moving coil phono cartridge generator design is symmetrical mechanically, magnetically and electrically. With the Concerto v2 generator, positioning their 24-karat pure gold air-core coils inside twice the number of super neodymium magnets creates more linearity and lower distortion. The new Micro-HD Diamond stylus is attached to a solid boron rod cantilever, transcribing the groove modulations to provide fast transient response, musical timing, and dynamics.

Clearaudio redesigned the generator in a revolutionary way by positioning and doubling the magnets (to 8 pcs.) so the coils are operating in a much stronger magnetic field. Furthermore we have chosen the strongest magnetic material available: super neodymium. Through these achievements, the efficiency has been raised by 30%, which results in an output of up to 0.9 mV at 5cm/sec. All models now utilize the improved V2 generator.

The new Micro-HD Diamond tip provides a hybrid parabolic geometry with a stylus radii of 0.008mm x 0.040mm. The total mass (0.00016g) is a fifth of the previous diamond stylus.

Cartridge body resonances, while tracking in the groove, are minimized through the twelve finger design of the mounting plate, each finger with a different radius. This is the result of our constant research and development.

The cartridge body of the Concerto is made out of Satinee wood. The generator construction of the new V2 moving coil cartridge generation is absolutely symmetrical: mechanically, magnetically and electrically, our unique design. All Clearaudio moving coils use our proven 24 ct. pure gold coils.
